What power connectors?


Mixed Farmer
I need to run a couple devices in my cab.
25 amp max draw.

4mm2 cable.

What type of in-line power connector would you reccomend?


D plug on its limit?
Seen people use blue /yellow mains round plugs and sockets?
Never ever use a mains plug/socket for low voltage stuff... the scope for something going horribly wrong is far too great. Besides which, if the OP thinks that a 50A Anderson is a bit "heavy duty" for his needs then he's definitely not going to be happy with a 32A BS4343 :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:


Every tractor here has a SB50 Anderson connector available at the back of the tractor. Any implements needing power have an Anderson connector.

Only started off with it on one tractor because of the sprayer compressor, but now having spread the system across all machines makes life very easy swapping implements around and saves clogging up battery terminals.
